Woman Rescues Puppy Thrown from Moving Car

It was like any other day for a woman driving in the northern area of Israel. Except suddenly a small brown ball of fur was thrown out of a car window; it was a puppy. After being tossed from the vehicle, the young pup was hit numerous times by passing cars before the woman could rescue him from the road. She eventually got to the pup, but he was in bad shape. The woman contacted a group called Let Animals Live, a no-kill rescue in the area of Tel Aviv. The group took in the little puppy, which was seriously injured and terrified of his surroundings. In particular, he was very scared of people and shied away from any sort of human affection. But, they persisted and took the dog named Ben-Ben to the veterinarian.

Vets determined that he was completely paralyzed in his back legs after being hit by cars. That’s when they built a wheelchair for him and his personality changed completely; he seemed to be happy. However, Ben-Ben spent several years in the shelter because his paralysis means he can’t control where he goes to the bathroom. However, one of the employees at the shelter who cared for him decided to adopt him. After consulting with doctors, his owner Noya Nardimon decided to have his back legs amputated. Doctors said this would help him, as he would be carrying around less weight and he could move freely. This has certainly been the case: he gets around quite well now, either in his wheelchair or out of it.

These days, Ben-Ben is really just enjoying his life in his home with his mom and his dog and cat siblings. His mom says he is the smartest, happiest dog she has ever met—a major accomplishment considering all he has been through in his life.
